The English Language Is A Killer

, , , | Friendly | March 3, 2020

I got this gem from a friend.

His dad will be hosting a foreign coworker for a month or two. Since all his luggage is quite heavy, the coworker has opted to have it delivered and only has a small backpack when he rings the doorbell.

The father is a bit surprised seeing his coworker emptyhanded, and since his English isn’t great he stumbles and tries to turn the Dutch word for suitcase, which is koffer, into something which sounds English.

“Hello! Welcome! Um… Have you brought a coffin?”
